    Description

    We are restoring an old house in Ardèche with ecological methods and we could do with some help!

    The house is in a lovely hamlet with nice neighbours living close to nature and sharing a natural access to water.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will discover a beautiful region of France with great traditions to learn from and will have an opportunity to practise their French (Claire is a former teacher of French as a foreign language) and also deconnection in a remote place with no internet, but access to nature and great walking trails! We like to be in our mountains far from tourists, but we will make sure that you see a few beautiful places during your stay, some old churches, nice traditional villages and some revigorating swims in the river!

    We need people who are not afraid of carrying wood, stones... building and restoring, so reasonnably strong. One part of the building is from the 17th century, so plenty to renovate to make a wonderful place to live in, in the future.
    And we expect also to prepare meals together.
    Please No Smoking!
